Live generation data from the Great Britain electricity grid

Mobile version

The bar chart shows how electricity demand in Britain is being met right now by different sources. The dials show each source's generation relative to its own historic minimum and maximum; so for example a half-full dial indicates that a source is generating halfway between its minimum and maximum values. The international connectors appear in black when Britain is importing from them, and red when exporting to them (exports are only updated half-hourly, as is solar generation). All figures are in gigawatts. The charts update automatically every 5 minutes. Data is provided by Elexon, with embedded wind and PV data coming from National Grid and the University of Sheffield PV_Live team
